Pitt Creates 'Quantum Repository' of Molecules in 3D

Jan 20, 2015

The way chemistry is taught has changed a lot over the years. With the advent of new technology, molecules and chemical reactions can be brought to life through digital models.

Now, a new quantum repository at the University of Pittsburgh will supplement college science lessons with a web-based database of 3D molecules and other data. Chemistry professor Daniel Lambrecht says the repository will begin with 50,000 to 100,000 molecules and chemical data.
